Slash Talks Up The Prospect Of A New GNR Album


Guitarist Slash has said in an interview with Classic Rock magazine that “there’s no shortage of ideas” for a new Guns N’ Roses album. The Guns n’ Roses riff master, is set to release a new record with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators solo band next month.

Slash explained, “when Guns n’ Roses started doing its thing on the ‘not in this lifetime’ tour, then the kind of writing I was doing was actually more tailored towards Guns because that was the environment I was in. But then we took the break and I started thinking about doing the conspirators record.”

“When it comes down to it, a riff is a riff,” he continued. “it could work in either context. But with the Conspirators, anything I come up with, Myles Kennedy will come up with something — and that’s why it’s such a diverse record. With guns, you have no idea where that’s going to go either, so it’s really hard to focus on one or the other, but I feel like while I’m out with guns, I’m thinking about Guns stuff. When I’m out with conspirators, I’m thinking of Conspirators.

“I’ve been doing the Conspirators for eight years now, so there’s a certain kind of rhythm that I’ve gotten into with doing that,” he added. “with guns, we’ve just started to touch the surface of what that’s going to all be, so I haven’t really fallen into that groove yet. Right now, there’s more of a question mark around that than with Conspirators.”

When pressed if he had begun to write material for a new Guns N’ Roses album, the axeman replied, “well, it’s not been announced because there’s nothing official, so there’s nothing to talk about. I think everybody thinks it’s a good idea, and everybody would like to do it. There’s no shortage of ideas from everybody involved, but we’ve been so busy on the road there hasn’t really been time to go in and sit down and go, ‘okay, we’re going to make a record.’”
